In the wake of misconduct by trusted clergy and lay leaders, members of congregations find themselves adrift. Often there are deep divisions within the church and open, direct, honest communication ceases. Wholeness After Betrayal offers an understanding of these dynamics and a process to help members take the first steps toward reconciling relationships with one another.
This specialised instruction is tested and proven, having been used effectively many times in a variety of congregational settings. It holds tremendous value for institutional healing, whether immediately following misconduct or even decades later.
A valuable resource for professionals serving dioceses, conferences, synods, and churches; those serving in any capacity with a disciplinary process; advocates; church communicators, media spokespersons; affected congregants; victims, and people who work in crisis intervention in communities of faith.
